As the coronavirus continues to spread, Justin Bieber is doing what he can to support the people of China.
“What’s going on China, Justin Bieber here,” he said in a video shared on his Instagram account. “I just wanted to say I know it’s a very scary time in the country right now, but my prayers of support go out to you guys, you guys are amazing.”
In the caption of his post, the 25-year-old wrote, “China we stand with you as a collective humanity and have made a donation to support [you].”
According to Billboard, the donation was made to Beijing Chunmiao Children Aid Foundation.
According to People, the Yummy singer’s donation was likely inspired by a conversation he had with actor Kris Wu, as per his mention in his Instagram post.

Watching the news I couldn’t imagine how scary it would be if a new disease was effecting my wife and my family and friends. China we stand with you as a collective humanity and have made a donation to support. Whether it be this or the fires of Australia we all need to be there for eachother. Shout out to my friend @kriswu for the conversation.
Justin isn’t the first star to pledge his support. Jackie Chan recently donated towards finding a vaccine for the virus.
